About Spiriva Respimat 2.5mcg
What is Spiriva Respimat used for?
The active ingredient of Spiriva is a drug called tiotropium. Tiotropium is an anticholinergic or antimusicarinic, indicated in the treatment of COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) and asthma as a long-term or as an add-on maintenance medication.
How does Spiriva Respimat work?
Spiriva is an anticholinergic which is also classified as a long acting muscarinic receptor antagonist (LAMA). Spiriva inhibits M3 receptors in the lungs to relax the airways. This results in bronchodilation and improves breathing within 30 minutes of the first dose.
A major advantage of using Spiriva is that this improvement in breathing lasts 24 hours and does not cause a rebound effect if the medication is stopped.
How to use Spiriva Respimat
Spiriva Respimat is used once daily. The usual dose is TWO puffs ONCE daily. Always follow the instructions that come with your inhaler.
Turn the clear base until it "clicks". Then open the cap, put your lips around the mouthpiece, and inhale pressing the dose-release button. Please refer to the patient information leaflet for detailed instructions.
If you forget to take your dose, please take the missed dose as soon as you remember. Do not take more than 1 dose in 24 hours.
Is there a Spiriva Equivalent?
Depending on whether you're using this to help with COPD or asthma, there may be some Spiriva alternatives available, although none are identical.
What are some side effects of Spiriva?
Spiriva may cause dizziness, hoarse voice, cough, dry mouth/throat, heartburn, constipation, dry skin, nosebleed, sinus infection, inflammation, and difficulty speaking. If you're experiencing constipation over a long time, please talk to your doctor.
Should I take Spiriva with or without food?
Food does not affect the absorption of Spiriva.
How do you load Spiriva Respimat?
Remove the clear base and insert the cartridge with the narrow end facing the inhaler. When the cartridge snaps in place, you will hear a "click". Replace the clear base and proceed to prime your inhaler.
Is there any drug interactions with Spiriva?
Although there hasn't been any formal drug interaction studies, Spiriva is commonly used with other drugs to help manage COPD and asthma. There is a potential for Spiriva to interact with other anticholinergics to cause additive side effects.
